Color Range iPhone app review

Summer is in full swing here in the northern hemisphere and it’s high time you captured some of those stunning summer hues on your iPhone. Let Color Range iPhone app from developer SSA Mobile take those pics from blah to BAM! with a few simple taps.

Curious to see what you can create with this stellar iPhone app? Read on. This iPhone app review will not disappoint.


At its heart the Color Range is a photo editing iPhone app that focuses solely on the colors of your photo. For example, you will not find any cropping functionality in this iPhone app, but you will find a slide scale that allows you to adjust a hue into a myriad of crazy shades with the simple drag of your finger.

Let’s walk through a photo edit together and see if that helps me clarify. To begin you will touch the Color Range iPhone app’s import icon in the lower left hand corner of the screen. From there you may select a picture already located on your device or use the camera to pull a pic directly into the app.

Once a pic is uploaded to the Color Range iPhone app there are five different edit buttons at the top of the screen. The first allows you to single out a specific color but grey scale all the others, or drag and drop the value of six different individual colors in the scene.

The other edit options are a brush screen that allows you to remove or add color by using your finger like a paint brush, a hue page where you can change the colors in the pic to almost anything, and a filters page where you can adjust the image’s brightness and saturation.

Share options include the ability to export the image to your iOS device’s album, Facebook and Twitter or share via email. There is an unlimited amount of undo and redo options saved in the app’s memory. There’s even a zoom feature to make editing easier. Whew, that’s a lotta features.

A recent software update allows Color Range iPhone app users to view their edits in real time. This feature is sweet and works like a charm. Watch your pic change as you drag and drop a value across the hue scale, or brush stroke grey scale with the touch of your finger.

I do have one small complaint, which is that loading a photo from an album to the app takes several seconds. Otherwise this app is as solid as they come, fast, responsive and a lot of fun.

User Interface:

Color Range iPhone app is as easy to use as it is fun. Function keys are kept to the top and bottom of the screen, which means you have optimal room on the screen to view your creation.

As a user just remember that the check mark saves what you changed on an edit screen and returns you to the main app page, while the “X” undoes your work.


Color Range iPhone app packs a ton of amazing features in an easy to use app at a pretty small price. It is definitely worth the $.99 investment if you want to create amazing pics easily and share them.

    I can’t believe you are actually spending time rating a ridiculous $0.99 app! Forget the rating. At 99 cents, you just take your chances and forget about it. Who buys this crap anyway? Wanna hear my rating for a bag of M&Ms? I can’t believe you actually refer to the 99 cents as an “investment”.
